Karen's square #2


Here is my second square - note it is not square nor is it the right size... It measures 9 1/2 wide by 9 tall. I might have to make this one over. So should I make a new one now and knock off two rows of stripes and five stitches (which would put me at 8 1/2 square) or should I wait and make another one once I settle into an even tension (my purls are looser than my knits) or should I just let it be and have one (and hopefully only one) square that is a bit too big?? Decisions...

Very nice Karen.

From the photo, your tension doesn't appear too bad. However, you aren't going to want a square that is way bigger than the rest of them. It will make your Afghan wonky. Did this square not measure up to square #1?

Nope - the second square is bigger. I'll wait until I have done some more - if the rest are bigger also I will remake square one. If the rest are the same size as square one - I'll remake square two... The first square is 8 1/2 by 8 1/2 and the second is 9 1/2 by 9...
